CEMETERY GUIDELINES

NO GLASS CONTAINERS!!

Glass or ceramic containers are NOT  ALLOWED ANYWHERE in the CEMETERY, which includes all MAUSOLEUMS. Glass vases and containers are dangerous since they break easily and can cause SERIOUS INJURY to people in the Cemetery. Plastic or metal containers should be used instead for your flowers and floral arrangements. This is DIOCESAN POLICY and, for insurance purposes, we are obligated to follow this policy. Any glass  containers found in the cemetery or mausoleums will be removed and discarded by the grounds keeper. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Flowers, potted plants, vases, baskets, statues, and all other items are NOT ALLOWED on the FLOORS OR WALKWAYS in ANY of the MAUSOLEUMS except at funeral time due to safety concerns. Any item found on the floors or walkways in any of the Mausoleums will be removed and discarded by the grounds keeper.

Flowers, vases, and statues are NOT ALLOWED in the AISLES OR WALKWAYS around any TOMB OR VAULT except at funeral time due to safety concerns. Flowers, vases, and statues are to be placed on the step of the tomb.
